Jessie Stone is without a doubt the most real to life cop ever. He has real life issues that he deals with in a real life manner, even has a shrink. He is motivated by what is right and searches for the "right" approach to a solution, sometimes using unorthodox methods to reach that solution. He is full of surprizes, witty, and always gets his man and/or woman with the help of his police team that will warm your hearts and make you laugh. Easy, exciting, and informative reading. Don't take my word for it, try it, you'll like it.
Publishers Weekly, 2008-12-22 In bestseller Parker's fluffy eighth Jesse Stone novel (after Stranger in Paradise), the Paradise, Mass., police chief almost effortlessly performs his laconic magic to restore order and right wrongs. When Betsy Ingersoll, the junior high school principal, decides to conduct a check of girls' undies before an eighth-grade dance, it may or may not have been a crime, but it certainly provokes a firestorm of protests. Then there's a Peeping Tom calling himself the Night Hawk, whose activities escalate from watching to home invasions. In addition, the legal activities of a group of adults calling themselves the Paradise Free Swingers are badly affecting two children. Jesse's ex-wife, Jenn, and his deputies, Molly Crane and "Suit" Simpson, lend support. With a few bold strokes, Parker sketches characters and plot, then uses long stretches of his trademark pithy dialogue to carry the story briskly forward. The result may not provide much of a meal, but it's certainly an enjoyable snack. (Feb.) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
